Office of Sustainability & Environment
700 5th Avenue Suite 5500
Seattle, WA 98124
United States

The Office of Sustainability & Environment (OSE) develops and implements citywide environmental policies and programs to advance a sustainable, equitable, and carbon neutral future for Seattle while creating vibrant communities and building shared prosperity. As part of this mission, OSE provides strategic direction in Seattle's food policy work, including advancing the coordinated, multi-department Seattle Food Action Plan, and implementing the Fresh Bucks food access program.

The Fresh Bucks program makes healthy food more affordable for low-income households. Fresh Bucks is a cross-sector initiative with many partners across business, community, and government sectors, including over 30 farmers markets, grocery stores, health clinics, and community-based organizations. To help ensure the success of this program, we have an opportunity to bring in an Outreach and Engagement Specialist to be part of the Fresh Bucks program team.

In this role, you will be instrumental in spearheading outreach and promotion efforts aimed at more than doubling program participation and expanding program eligibility. You'll develop and implement an ambitious, comprehensive, multi-layered, racially equitable communications and outreach strategy that increases program participation while supporting community capacity building around health food access. OSE prioritizes racial equity and environmental justice in our work to protect Seattle's environment, and you should share OSE's commitment.
